I would continue a career in research but move into industry where I can apply my existing knowledge. I would also like to showcase materials science and help people gain a better understanding of what materials science is and why it is important.
What is your favourite material (and why)?
Since my research focuses on polymers, my favourite material is nylon because it is used in so many different applications.
What advice would you give your 16 year old self?
Study subjects that you enjoy and do not put too much pressure on yourself, everything will fall into place!
